No! Oxford comma FTW! :-)

Actually, I don't think it matters all that much, though I do think it should be 
consistent. A bit of (quite possibly buggy) grepping shows the oxford comma 
being used about 4 times as often as it's not, so it would probably be easier to 
stay with it. Also, in something that needs to be precise like a spec, it might 
be good to keep it.

Also, I just realized I linked to the w3c version of the spec; the typo is 
present in the whatwg-hosted one too.
